Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies might want to skip August after another terrible session of high stakes online poker last night.

Sahamies, who earlier in the month said he was going to wait until September to play poker again, lost $169,000 to Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond and fellow Finnish pro Patrik Antonius.

First Ziigmund lost $18,000 playing heads-up $300/$600 PLO against Antonius, then he lost over $130k playing the same game three-handed against Antonius and Vaga_Lion.

Ziigmund finally added another $20k in losses to Galfond before calling it a night.

The unpredictable Finnish pro now finds himself down $759,301 in the month of August and mentioned on his blog that he might try some lower stakes in the next few weeks.

Despite his success against Sahamies, Antonius did not finish the evening in the black. In fact Antonius actually lost $70k, most of it to hot hand OMGClayAiken.

Galfond had one of his best days on the year with $286k in profit. Galfond now sits with over $1 million in profit in 2010.

Gus Hansen fans might also be interested to know that the Great Dane finally pulled off a winning session last night. Hansen won $79,426 playing $200/$400 Cap PLO. If he can just win $1.3 million more he'll be even for August.
